hell have you been missy?!!??
Ummmmmmm taking a break?
Yeah well, where the fawk is your note??
Sorry I don't mean to be flip, it has apparently been a bazillion years since I have posted. Simplest answer is that life got very (very, very) complicated and some things had to drop out of the equation if I was going to stay sane*.
I have spent the past week or so trying to compose this post in my head to give some sort of answer as to what has been up without going into areas that I would rather not or can not discuss. I can tell you that after a week of trying it is impossible. Every post I wrote in my head just became this big whining mess of a post and if I wanted to whine on this blog I would have never stopped posting in the first place. Right??
SO! Suffice to say I am on the mend I believe (I hope). I'm going to take this slow. I am going to try to pace myself better and not put as much pressure on myself when it comes to this blogish thing**. As we/me/I mentioned in that last post, things will start to change around here, but not all at once, I could never pull that off.
To also add/clarify...my absence from the blog was pretty much a complete absence from the internet. Even to a degree my life that was not directly family/work related. To say that I have been a little closed off and out of circulation would be an understatement. I owe people e-mails, letters, packages, thank-yous and a million other things. The list is stupidly overwhelming, and on a good day I just want to vomit when I think about it. I am going to do my level best to catch up as soon as I can. Bear with me, I know I'm a pain in the ass but I have my days where I am worth it. Honest.
* That of course being a relative term.
** I will address this particular part more specifically in another post.
*** All in all I think I managed to not be too whiny. yay me!
